Michelle Yu, an experienced hiker from Venice, CA, went missing near Mount Baldy on Saturday afternoon and still has not been found. Her car was parked at Manker Flats and she may have been caught in the recent storm over the weekend while hiking the Mount Baldy / Ski Hut Trail.
Rescue crews remain optimistic with the clearing weather and Yu’s experience hiking, but their searches have so far come up empty handed.
Our thoughts are with Yu and her friends and family as well as the rescue crews. If you’re hiking in the Mount Baldy area, please keep your eye out for any signs of a stranded hiker.
